Now, this is curious.
I never do anything like this; in fact, my oldskool Blogger account is SO oldskool that my oldest blog in it has options in the Settings which aren't even available to more recent users.
That said, anything shiny and new, I have to be on the bandwagon (but of course, what's a geek to do) so here we are - Blogger Beta.
I am liking this interface, I look forward to when I can convert my old account over so as to take advantage of all these new features - I especially like the dynamic Template editor, you can pick a template from the list and then customise it with a handy drag-and-drop interface to suit your liking. That's pretty cool. In fact, all of the template screens have had a refresh, with increased in-browser flexibility for customisation without having to be well-versed in CSS/HTML (although, like in oldskool Blogger, you can enter it manually if you want).
The Create Post screen has a few small updates too, most notably an inline tags box (well, they call it 'labels' - I guess it pings Technorati and/or similar aggregators with the tags you've specified.
More coming soon, when I've had a proper chance to fully check it out - it's 4:27am now, and I have to be in Uni, in the recording studio (I'm doing BSc. Music Technology, so there's a lot of studio work) at 8am. Yay for me.
Until next time...
My name's Christopher, and this site's my venue for discussion and highlighting of topics more relevant to my technical (and technological) interests.
It appears that you're interested in newfangled thingumajigs and technological bits 'n bobs (all with a healthy dose of cynicism thrown into the mix - for the best, of course).
I'm glad to know I'm not the only one!
Hopefully this blog and its content contained herein adds some value to somebody else's day... Maybe even yours. Thanks for stopping by. :)

What else does Christopher do?
As well as this site, the most recent creation to crawl from my subconscious, I also spend my time writing on my personal blog (not always safe for work, it is very much my thoughts as they come out so beware!)
When I'm doing work proper, I'm a cross-media designer, systems analyst, solutions provider and general on-call geek for my company, based in the Birmingham area. As an aside, I also provide custom web hosting solutions for people who want a solution that's a little more personal (and cost-effective).
Since moving to the fair city of Birmingham, I've increasingly found it a rich, detailed place to live, and eventually I decided to start blogging about it. Thus was born About Brum, and slowly but surely I'm chipping away at the latest development for it - podcasts highlighting one aspect of the city or the region in depth. Lots more work to do on those, but they should be great when they're finished.
